Welcome to BorderTramp
This is your source for information on how to travel Central America and the Yucatan. We have traveled repeatedly throughout the region since 1976, and we took a lot of notes. So whether you are planning your first trip, or are a seasoned tramper, we have information that can help you along the way. That is assuming you like the idea of averaging spending less than $20 a day on your bed, food and transportation. Luxury hotels and all-inclusive resorts won’t be found on this site. But what we do list are hotels and hostels with beds that cost less than $15 per night. We also feature street food and local eateries where you can fill up for less than the cost of a happy meal, and tips on navigating public transportation throughout the region. Included in doing we cover scuba diving, ruins, volcano surfing in Nicaragua, surfing El Salvador, whale shark trips, national parks and lakes, all of which can break your budget but may be affordable after the money we save you.
So to get started, you can browse by clicking the countries listed on the left which will bring you to cities, sleeping, eating, getting- going, things to do, and stories of our adventures. Each city will have its own detailed write-up. You can also read more about us below, or in the About tab at the top. Or if you have questions, or comments, updates to our information or think that you want to write for BorderTramp, visit the Contact Us Page. We hope you both enjoy BorderTramp and contribute your experiences to our website.
